What's the worst weekly travel itinerary you've had to endure?

I have a nearly identical flight schedule, though my layover was 1 hour. It's hard to get to Harrisburg, man.

like

5 AM flight + 45 min connection + 45 min drive. Two 3+ hr flights. Longest weeks ever.

like

For me: 6am flight on Delta, 2.5 hour flight connecting in a hub city, 1.5 hour layover, 2 hour flight to client city, 30 minute drive to client. On the bright side If everything went smoothly Monday's started after lunch and Thursday's ended at lunch.

Sunday night - Friday night for 8 months.

like

Was that because you chose to fly Delta instead of other carriers

This one week I had to rent a car Sunday night and drive 2hr to a client workshop Monday morning, ditch the car at their airport that night and fly 3hr to Chicago for two more days of workshops, fly Thursday night to New Jersey for another workshop on Friday, then take the Acela home.... Never again.
